Thinking of what to cook for Turkey Day.

This is the first time in 5years that I'm considering
cooking something special for Turkey Day. The duplex
I used to own has what I call a "GO TO YOUR ROOOM!"
kitchen where you go to the back of the house into a
one-butt pass through and face a wall. So it kind of put
the crimper on my cooking activities.

So the rental's kitchen is at least open (still can't see the
TV but that will be fixed in about 7months) and I've
been cooking a lot more. So back to what to do for TD.

Personally I don't like turkey - I much prefer capon. As
a single person I'd be stuck with a lot of capon so I was
thinking of cornish hen. Then I thought, how about a
medeival or renaissance recipe. Those folks were
good for stuffing meat with meat! So I was thinking
about stuffing some cornish with maybe some smoked
eel, wild rice and mushrooms, maybe some bacon. I
dunno. I just ordered "Shakespeare's Kitchen:
Renaissance Recipes for the Contemporary Cook" from

Anyone ever try something like this?

This is a bit much for 1 or 2 people but sound interesting. Gotta try it someday.

The lady I work side-by-side with every day is Cajun, and she bought one of those, ready to cook, last year. She said it was great eating.

I never had any eel but in my opinion anything thats been smoked must be good. Do let us know how this comes out, it sounds good, especially with the wild rice, mushrooms and bacon, maybe add a hot pepper or two and some onion, who knows.... I think I'm gonna get this book it sounds like it's got potential, maybe even be good with a little Cajun touch!

My first thought about smoked eel-aren't they soggy and hard to light?:^)

I have ate a lot of eel, but it was always fried, tasted just like fried catfish to me, no bones tho.

LOL! I like broiled eel very much, I imagine broiled eel
stuffed in a cornish hen would impart some of its
eelness to the poultry. Can't wait for the cookbook!
